👩🎨 Brush With Nature - King's County Museum
Event: August 1 - 20th
I didn’t get to King’s County on the first of the month as I had planned because I had a bug — thankfully feeling better now and relieved it wasn’t Covid.
But I did get to Hall’s Harbour this weekend to paint with the King’s County Museum’s Brush With Nature Plein Air event in mind.
If you’re in Nova Scotia, you know the incredible heat we’re experiencing right now. Although I think the roses like the warm weather they’ll probably like the drink of water that’s forecast for this week (rain everyday1).
I was hoping to be able to see across the Bay of Fundy to the Advocate area but haze and clouds prevented that.
The cloud systems and patterns in the water are changeable (don’t like the weather? wait five minutes, as the saying goes). Here is the mist moving over the distant shoreline near Hall’s Harbour:
The tides turn so fast in the Bay of Fundy. I guess it’s because all the water bottlenecks as it flows into the basin. By the time I finished the following painting, the boat and the dock were sitting on the gravel bottom of Hall’s Harbour.
Thanks as always for your support and encouragement, greatly appreciated.
Just a reminder that PIPAF 2022 paintings are still available for purchase. Click here if you’re interested in acquiring an original oil painting from the Parrsboro International Plein Air Festival. ♥️
According to the Weather Network, rain is forecast in Nova Scotia every day this week.
That reminds me of a joke:
Q. What comes after two days of rain in Nova Scotia?
